I am in network with Empire BCBS.
Out of network:
If you have another insurance plan with out of network benefits, you may be able to get reimbursement. I am more than happy to provide a Superbill at the end of the month that you can submit to your insurance provider.
How do I know if I have mental health services through insurance?
Call the number on the back of your insurance card. There may be a separate number for behavioral health services. If I am an in network provider (BCBS), ask what your copay is, if you have a limited number of allowable sessions per year, and if you have an in network deductible. If you are out of network, you should ask if you have out of network benefits for mental health coverage, if there is an out of network deductible that has to be met, and what percentage they will reimburse after that time.
If I’m not a child, teen, or parent can I still see you?
Possibly! While I specialize in these areas, I encourage you to contact me so that we can discuss whether I might be a good fit for you.
How do I get started?
After receiving an inquiry from you, I will call you for a brief phone consult to gather some basic information to determine if the services I provide are a match for what you need. After this, we will set up an initial intake appointment. Prior to your first visit, I will send you an invite to register and complete paperwork via my client portal. At our first meeting, I will conduct a more detailed history. At this time, you or your child can also share your therapy goals with me.
How long are sessions?
Individual therapy sessions, parent coaching, and baby bonding sessions are "usually" 45 minutes. Family sessions are 60 minutes.
Payment is due at the time of service via cash or check.
I have a 24 hour cancellation policy. However, I am also aware that Rockland County winters can be unpredictable and that life with children happens! I ask that you call me to discuss rescheduling options.
